Self-regulatory framework to ensure ethical standards

General News Self-regulatory framework to ensure ethical standards


The government says the self-regulatory framework for churches and religious organizations is not meant to curtail the operations of church organizations in the country.

ZANIS reports that the Minister of Religious Affairs and National Guidance Godfridah Sumaili explained that the self-regulatory framework is aimed at ensuring that churches adhere to legal, ethical and other standards.

Reverend Sumaili said the self-regulatory frame will guide the church and religious organizations, from external control.

The Minister said this in a speech read for her by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary Howard Sikwela.

Reverend Sumaili added that the regulatory framework will also protect the congregants and the public from false men of God.

She noted that lack of a regulatory framework exposes the country to abusive and false teachings.

The Minister was speaking on the sidelines of the ministry’s “self-regulatory framework” meeting, which has attracted church and religious community leaders from across the country.

  1. Do you think these gold diggers can regulate themselves. In a profession where every pastor wants to be regarded as a prophet and his wife a prophetess its like asking thieves to draft criminal law!

  2. Self regulation !
    In a profession full of gold diggers where a pastor wants to be called a prophet and his wife a prophetess.
    Its like asking thieves to to draft criminal laws!
    Africans are such gullible people!

  3. This woman with her six months certificate on bible college doesn’t know what she is doing.

    This ministry should be cancelled if not given to one of the Roman Catholic priests who have studied more.

    • The Catholics, the 7th Day Adventists, the Methodists (latterday UCZ), the Anglicans and the Salvation Army were there before Zambia came into being. They educated the generation that fought for independence. They know wht to do. Regulation should be for mushroom churches.

  4. You cannot regulate ethics, mwe fipumbu mwe. You can only go on to create laws to define what must or must not be permissible. When is someone going to move a motion to scrub this useless ministry off of the establishment? Mu ononga cabe ndalama – you could pay for more MW of electricity from ESKOM with what you are wasting apa peve.
